The contest is over, and winners have been announced. Results can be seen at http://wolf3d.morezombies.net/wolfsource/the-key-to-success-contest-results/ for ease of not having to write everything again.

Congratulations and a big thank you to everyone involved! The contest was a surprising success, and revealed a few of the holes in the process. Hopefully once everything is ironed out, any future contests I do will be a bit more fleshed out.

Love you guys.




Lame name aside, I wanted to put forward a little contest for anyone who might be interested in participating.

http://wolf3d.morezombies.net/contest/




Contest Name: The Key To Success



The contest is as follows: make a new key sprite. Rustic keys, weird keys, keycards, anything that unlocks a door!

Full rules and details are listed on the page linked above, but for ease the basics are:

Image size: 6464 only.
Image filetypes: .GIF or .PNG
Try to keep colours restricted to the original Wolf3D palette.
Sprite must not already be in a publicly released form (in a game or as a downloadable file), and must be your own work.

There's an upload form on the page itself, which will display your submission in a gallery for people to comment on and vote.




Most importantly, I'd like to hear people's thoughts on this format. I'd like to do prizes, though I'm still trying to work out what to do on that front. A showcase for contest winners on the website is definitely something being included, but if there's more I can do I would really like to hear and explore those options.

Edit: Thanks to feedback, some changes to how submissions work; usernames will be asked for at upload but will be kept hidden until after voting time to try and encourage impartial voting.

I think an additional idea would be to make each key have its own unique shape, rather than each key be the same image recolored. Not saying this should be essential to the rules, but if you can't decide on which shape of the key you like best, this is a good reason to use both. Smile

I hope people aren't discouraged to think outside the box; anything that functions as a key can count. You can experiment and make a keycard, or go Quake and make runes.

Submissions are now closed! Uploads are reenabled for around 6 more hours, due to timezone errors with the countdown. My apologies!

There were some new submissions last minute, and as said the quality of submissions has been mindblowing.

If you haven't yet, there's still a week left to look at the sprites and vote for your favourite ones ^^

http://wolf3d.morezombies.net/contest/

Edit: Votes have also increased from 3 to 5 with the addition of so many entries! Above and beyond, guys ^^

I could not have been happier extending the time. The URL is janky but "http://wolf3d.morezombies.net/contest/#!gallery/9/image/57/portal_key"

That same time-zone issue has reared it's ugly head again, and shown that countdown timers are flawed. Voting is up for another few hours as a result.

And with the contest finished, results have been posted on the website at http://wolf3d.morezombies.net/wolfsource/the-key-to-success-contest-results/ (Link also added to initial post).

Massive thanks again to everyone involved, and congratulations to everyone that placed. It's been a rad time!

Next time hopefully we'll be able to change things up and expand on this.

Edit: Additionally, you can now see the Username of each submission's author on the contest page!

The entries in this contest were fantastic. I hope to see these used in future mods, should the subimtters choose to take their work that far. Smile

Hey my 3d key got into second place, that's awesome! All of the winners were definitely deserving.
